Our very own fantastical wedding!

Shoo wee! I dont even know where to start with this post! Writing about our own wedding seems so much harder than writing about all the wonderful weddings we shoot! (Be warned, this post will have lots more writing than normal as lots of people have asked lots of questions about our wedding) Lets start off with our most asked question, “who is shooting your wedding?”. We knew from the get go that we didnt want super traditional or super posed pics, we really wanted someone who would bring something unique to shooting our wedding, like we try to do for the couples whose weddings we shoot. That is why we didnt hire a wedding photographer, we hired Tyrone Bradley, an event, motoring and people photographer working with Red Bull and itswhatiminto. Tyrone was so awesome and we learnt so much from him and we really could not have asked for a more incredible guy! He even stayed and jammed with us till the end of the reception!

When it came to our own wedding pics, 2 things were important to us, having our photos in Ponta D’Ouro (about a 40 minute round trip from the wedding venue in Ponta Malongane) and to not be away from our friends and family for too long after the ceremony. The best option then was to do our pics the day before and boy are we glad we did! There was no rushing, no guilt about missing out on our reception, and best of all it created so much excitement for the day before the wedding as well! We did first look pics where our parents led us to each other. It was so good to include them and honestly, I would highly recommend this to any couple interested!

  • We are beyond excited to be telling some adventure stories and sharing some of our pictures from our alter egos @wechooseadventure, in the much anticipated print journal @conteu_magazine. So honored to be working with these ridiculously talented humans! 😊
  • I can't think of another time  in life when you are this happy about people throwing plants at you. But it is a pretty epic time ☺️
  • The lessor spotted groom portrait in its natural habitat.
  • The first holiday we ever took just the two of us was 10 years ago, at this exact same place. We haven't been back since then. Who would have thought the last ten years would be such an epic adventure?!
  • Camp set up, in 38 seconds :) #wechooseadventure
  • Weekend spot, @wechooseadventure  having a celebratory beer 😍 #wechooseadventure
  • Dance floor sing-alongs are always the business. This may have been to the Backstreet Boys, but we ain't judging...
  • Think I may legitimately be in love with Andy and Kern and their epic Durban City wedding 😍 cannot wait to blog this gem!
  • There's nothing like the happy faces of your favourite women to confirm that you're marrying the right one πŸ’œ And Andy's ladies were positively beaming!
  • Real emotion beats any exotic location 😍
  • Real Dev. Probably one of the things we love most about weddings, are those uncontrollable moments, the ones you can't anticipate until they are happening. Epic couple pics in exotic locations or artistically created portraits are amazing and we flipping love those, but those aren't weddings. THIS is what a wedding really is. Overflowing emotion you can't hide and that insane joy of committing to your person for the rest of your lives. We lived this moment with Dev, and that is simply the best feeling.
  • Going through some old pics of us and hoping one day we will get another Halloween weekend off so we can look all ridiculous again 🀘🏼

  • Really excited about seeing some of our adventure photos and stories in print 😊 Honored to be working with the talent from @conteu_magazine . Give them a follow and order your copy now!
  • Setting up camp in 38 seconds πŸ’«
  • Practicing Eric Clapton's "Layla" by campfire light 🎸 
There were no other people around for miles, but I hope the baboons in the valley weren't cringing when I hit bum notes πŸ™‰
  • There wasn't a cloud in the sky except for this one lurking behind the hill.
  • The view is always better from the roof of a Land Rover 😊

We're loving our new camping setup with the addition of the Howling Moon "Wizz" popup tent. We had it off the roofrack and up in less than 3 minutes πŸ’«
  • The view up the valley toward Hawk and Tent peaks. Lotheni, Drakensberg, South Africa
  • Crossing the Lotheni river isn't normally this easy, but the drought in Southern Africa has taken it's toll on the landscape, the farms and the people.
  • I love the colour of the Drakensberg in winter with the rusty hills and the ice blue sky.

Spent most of the day exploring with @knotjustpics soaking it all up and burning through memory cards πŸ˜‰
  • Getting some perspective by turning upside down.

A sun salutation and a head stand was the perfect way to start the morning in the Drakensberg.
  • Rush hour on the way to Lotheni for our camping weekend.
  • All our photos put together to show our camping weekend in 52 seconds πŸ’«
  • Patiently posing for @knotjustpics while she experiments with our new tilt shift lens in the Drakensberg mountains.

The "tilt" creates the creamy soft focus strips that we wanted to use in some of our wedding portraiture. The "shift" is mostly used for correcting the pinching effect when shooting up at a tall building. A concept I only understood when we started playing with this lens.

You can pretty much create these same effects in Lightroom or Photoshop, but where's the fun in that.

These are some of the awesome blogs we've been featured on
